Brookfield Residential has announced the July, 2015 preview opening of Five Knolls, a new, 247-acre, masterplanned community in Santa Clarita. Set amidst five knolls overlooking the Santa Clarita Valley, where Newhall Ranch Road and Golden Valley Road connect, Five Knolls offers an unprecedented opportunity for new residences and modern floorplans. The 494 homes of Five Knolls are built by Brookfield Residential with four other award-winning homebuilders. Five Knolls also includes much-anticipated public parks – including the five-acre Golden Valley Park – and community improvements such a long-sought extension of Golden Valley Road.

“The hillsides of Five Knolls are some of the most attractive settings for new homes in Santa Clarita,” said Brookfield Residential Director of Marketing Alison Gerard. “This community is emerging as a scenically inspiring small world designed around a refreshing new lifestyle for the region.”

Five Knolls advances the tradition of the single-family home. Its six distinctive collections are from an all-star lineup of homebuilders chosen by Brookfield Residential. They offer a palette of varying colors, textures and materials in architectural styles that include Santa Barbara, Spanish, American Farmhouse and Monterey. The neighborhoods are:
* Highglen by Brookfield Residential. A gated neighborhood of two-story detached residences, approximately 3,789-4,235 square feet, with 4-6 bedrooms, 3.5-5.5 baths and 3-bay garages. Highglen homes are anticipated from the $700,000s.

* Monterra by Christopher Homes. A gated neighborhood of two-story detached residences, approximately 3,591 – 3,858 square feet, with 5 – 7 Bedrooms, 4.5 – 6 baths, and a “California Room” for indoor-outdoor living. With 2- and 3-car garages, Monterra is anticipated from the $700,000s.

* Brighton by Brookfield Residential. A gated neighborhood of two-story detached residences, approximately 3,116 – 3,471 square feet, with 4 -6 bedrooms, 3.5 – 4.5 baths and 3-bay garages. Brighton is anticipated from the $600,000s.

* Everett by Meritage Homes. Two-story detached residences, approx. 2,724 – 3,131 square feet. With 3 -5, bedrooms, 2.5 – 4.5 baths and 2-bay to 3-car tandem garages. Everett is anticipated from the $500,000s.

* Grayson by TRI Pointe Homes. Two-story detached residences, approximately 2,121 – 2,470 square feet, with 3 – 5 bedrooms, 2.5 – 3 baths and 2-car garages. Grayson is anticipated from the $500,000s.

* Haywood by KB Home. Two-story detached residences, approximately 1,849 – 2,366 square feet, with 3 -5 bedrooms, 2.5 – 3 baths, and 2-car garages. Haywood is anticipated from the $500,000s.

 

“Distinguished from the existing housing stock in Santa Clarita, all of the residences of Five Knolls are generous in size and thoughtfully stylish in design,” said Gerard. “They satisfy a thirst among area homebuyers for the latest floorplans and features, including great rooms, creative indoor/outdoor spaces and expansive kitchens.”

 

Private Club and Public Parks

The social heart of Five Knolls is The Club, a private recreation hub with pool, spa and inviting indoor and outdoor gathering spaces. Walkably close is the new Golden Valley Park, with a mix of open spaces and social gathering spots surrounding an open turf area. It will also have picnic areas, a shaded playground, basketball half-courts and big and small dog parks. Five Knolls’ eight bike and walking trails connect to 30 miles of nearby trails.

In addition to the Golden Valley Park, Five Knolls offers five other public parks, each signified by the knoll for which they are named. Butterfly Knoll features a path that winds through a planted meadow. Sunset Knoll offers unobstructed views of the valley facing west. Orchard Knoll includes a trail through a small orchard with seating area and valley views. Above The Club at Five Knolls is Kite Knoll with expansive turf areas for relaxing and picnicking. And Oak Knoll has the highest elevation of the knolls with scenic overlooks and an oak grove.

The parks of Five Knolls illustrate the sensitivity of Brookfield Residential’s masterplan.

“The community doesn’t sprawl,” said Gerard. “Rather, its neighborhoods cluster around open space, its namesake knolls and meandering trails. The sense of arrival that begins at the rustic entry hints at how scenic and artfully designed Five Knolls is. Even the way the roads curve feel as though there’s more to discover just ahead.”

Outside of Five Knolls are a wealth of recreation opportunities. More than 30 miles of trails meander throughout Santa Clarita with more than 25 parks and the nearby Santa Clarita Aquatic Center and Sports Complex.

The Golden Valley Road extension connects Golden Valley Road (from Newhall Ranch Road) all the way through to Bouquet Canyon. Long-sought by the surrounding community, this extension offers a faster, more direct route to great shopping, dining and entertainment in the Santa Clarita Valley. More information on recreation, shopping and schools surrounding Five Knolls is available on its FAQ page.

Although Santa Clarita is the third-largest city in Los Angeles County, with access to some of the finest recreation and employment opportunities in California, it retains its small-town values. For example, it was named number-three among the Top 10 Safest Cities in America 2014 by Parenting Magazine.\

Those interested in becoming part of the Five Knolls community may join its interest list, now open.

    Is our city stupid? They must be because they continue to let builders build even though we are in a mandated drought!!! How much kick back is the city getting this time?? Stop building!!!

    • Your comment suggests you think the city has the legal authority to stop a landowner from building. That would be incorrect. The city merely has the power to regulate development (i.e., make it really expensive for the builder).

    • Of course the city can stop them. It’s the city council that approves BUILDING permits.

    • Linda Morgan Linda Morgan says:

      If it is true, then why don’t they make it really expensive?

    • Max Young Max Young says:

      This is utterly ridiculous! We can only water twice a week but yet they keep on building all these stupid homes! Even some next door to railroad tracks! Are you freaking kidding me?!

    • The ones next to the railroad tracks by golden valley is actually where we will be living at some point.

      They are building them for low income veteran families with the help of habitat for humanity, so I am very grateful and happy that an opportunity like that exists for us all. It isn’t free but they all deserve a nice affordable home as well.

      The city can say NO! To the permits but then they wouldn’t get any money. I am just overwhelmed with all the construction when there is no water to do it!! Why won’t the city say no? Because they will lose income!! SCVTV Santa Clarita. We have to monitor our watering per the state when I see water trucks with 3500 gallon tanks washing the street. I am sorry but that makes no since to me!! There are way to many people here now. Will it ever stop? One valley one vision. I guess my vision and the city’s vision are way different! I have lived here all my life and it’s out of control!! This is my opinion!

    • Yeah, there will be 76 homes there (almost all with small kids), all energy efficient appliances, etc… we have to put in 500hrs per family of classes and working on the homes, it’s pretty cool. At least you will see that there is one good community coming to the valley.

    • I think they were planned before the drought and they had to finish them but they shouldn’t be building so much homes until the drought is over

    • Ok now… the city can control a lot at the planning stages… infrastructure is outpaced. Landscapers in the bldng dept are goofs.

  2. More homes really?? Traffic is ridiculous as it is trying to get from one side of town to the other. Trying to get to work in the morning on the 14 is a nightmare.

  3. Amy Harris Amy Harris says:

    Terribly frusterating

  4. Let’s pack’em in…

  5. Maya Buzinovskaya-Costales

  6. It’s all about greed and profit. Traffic, no water, busy freeways, the builders don’t have to deal with that, why should they care.

  7. Susan Kipper Susan Kipper says:

    Does anyone know when the road will open?

  8. Curt Howard Curt Howard says:

    This project was ok’d many years ago before the drought. I was told by someone working on the site that Golden Valley will open between Newhall Ranch and Dorothy sometime in September.

  9. Jim Oge Jr Jim Oge Jr says:

    Stupid over populated city building NO WATER, YET WE HAVE TO CUT BACK AND NOW PAY MORE BECAUSE THE POOR WATER COMPANY IS BROKE. WE NEED TO VOTE OUT OUR CITY OFFICIALS AND GET PEOPLE IN THERE TO DO IT RIGHT.

    • Sure and hold every other one accountable also. There needs to be a clear message that these politicians understand that they’re not going to be kept in office if they don’t do what they say they’re going to do.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Another reason why our children made their homes elsewhere, and we are selling our home and settling down elsewhere. We moved there in 1988, and it is not the same friendly “Ausome” (as the town calls themselves). Valley we came to.

  11. On a positive note….the project will be extending Golden Valley Road, which will benefit many people in Saugus and Canyon Country, and may actually create less traffic elsewhere in the City. They are also building a beautiful new park and lots of trails. A future phase will include a new YMCA and a new Senior Center. And CLWA put in writing that they have the water to provide to the project.

    • How can they have water for it when all our grass and trees are dying because we can’t use water!?

    • I’m sure if you call them they would be happy to explain it. Their comment in the newspaper recently is that they have sufficient water to serve a valley population of a half million people.

    • Erik Doyle Erik Doyle says:

      Most of the landscape that is being installed out there are plants and trees that require minimal water. Landscape architects never had to consider a drought years ago when a lot of this city was built. Now, everything is looked at for efficiency.

    • Looks like they have succeeded in getting you on theit side Jeannine, with their new parks and such. Why is my lawn turning brown if CLWA has enough water for this eye sore?

    • I love living here and I don’t blame others for wanting to be here. I used to live in LA so I laugh when people say we have traffic here, but I work here too and don’t have to commute on the freeway- I agree that is a nightmare. People complain every time new homes are built…they want their home to be the last one ever built out here, but that is a very narrow-minded opinion….but they are certainly entitled to that opinion.

  12. I hope they finish widening the Golden Valley bridge before their done building..

    I hope they don’t need water.

  19. Greg Banta Greg Banta says:

    I hope they don’t need water.

  20. All this, while one of the jewels of Santa Clarita, Wiley canyon road north of Lyons Ave. withers and dies from no water. Those are, or were, some of the most magnificent trees in this valley during the fall.

  21. Yay! Keep them out of Valencia

  22. Is anyone addressing the issue that we only have ONE hospital out here? We can’t even get a Kaiser HOSPITAL. We need better health care options out here. We have to drive to the armpit Panorama City to get urgent and hospital care and tests. That is sick.

  23. Tessa Lucero says:

    @Susan Kipper, the road is already open.

  24. Cathy says:

    NO water=No new homes. simple

  25. I interviewed w this builder for this project back in 09… the interviewer was a woman (division pres). She asked me a philosophical question if I felt I was of more importance to the company then the receptionist? I thought… because I knew it was a trap… well, I know I can do her job – and – I know she cant do mine. Nor could you do my job… (I knew she never crawled around in the dirt.) My value is in what I am capable of doing… not just a job title on an organizational chart… I didnt get the job. They said I was not a team player, too corporate. WTF…

  26. Thousands more people, more lawns, more crowding on our over burdened streets and freeways. And the fact that we are already in a drought situation. What ever happened to the promises of slow growth from our politicians?

  27. Looks like someone doesn’t want us to read all the comments. When I hit “view more replies, the page returns to the original meme.

  28. Mark Natzke Mark Natzke says:

    between this and Newhall land and farm with 21000 homes we can expect dust to flow from our taps we are out of control and who cares what it cost it realey is about the money not the quality of life or the people.

  29. This is why I use as much water everyday as I can. Plenty of water here is SCV. And plenty of room on the roads.

  30. Sam Valente Sam Valente says:

    They’ll never finish building these. The prices are inflated and will burst once the interest rates go up. This is exactly what happened to Fair Oaks Ranch in 2008 and 2009. Most of the 600k and 700k homes fell out of escrow to the point the builder stopped building them. Of course, the rates went down again (government mettling) and the prices went back up and they had a grand (re) opening. Now, there’s over building all over Santa Clarita again.

  31. Joanna Ochoa Joanna Ochoa says:

    I live near Dorothy and Golden Valley so we have witnessed the development. Tons of water, tons of dust all over our homes, our driveways, our cars. And we are not looking forward to them opening Golden Valley. As it is, people are speeding at 70-80 miles in a 50 mph on the small stretch from plum canyon. Can’t imagine how it’s going to be once it’s open.

  32. Shocking. If people want to move. Let them buy a house on the market for sale. Stop flippin building. Period
